Subject: Contemporary press reviews (1905)
"Rich in information and instinct with literary charm. Every page bears witness to first-hand knowledge of the country ... the author is master of his subject. It is a mine of quaint folk-lore, of philology and natural history, and the descriptions of scenery are delightful ... there is scarcely a page without some droll suggestion." -- Times Literary Supplement, Jan. 31, 1905.


"The foremost living authority on his subject. Well illustrated with original photographs, it caters both for the expert and for the ordinary reader." -- Daily Chronicle, Mar. 27, 1905.


"Of all the books on Tibet this is the most complete and the most authoritative. His perpetual curiosity, his diligent research, his exceptional knowledge and his vigorous style of writing give to this work both authority and brightness."- Contemporary Review, June 1905.
